Perfect in every way

Reverend Dave is the best reverend we know, and we are IN the wedding business. When we got engaged early this year, we knew who we wanted to have for our ceremony right away, and called him to make sure he was available for our date, which he was (we would have changed our date if not!). Rev Dave is not only a real reverend, ordained by the church, but he is also funny and personable, which really helps make the ceremony a FUN event! He's also has years of experience, so you cannot go wrong. Don't skimp on your ceremony - get the best reverend there is!!

Thank you Dave!

The INCREDIBLE Rev Dave Delivers!!!

I cannot say enough great things about Rev Dave Angle!!! We are beyond thrilled to have had him as our wedding officiant. He enjoys bringing two loving people together and it definitely shows! He understands the importance of this day and is extremely helpful with his advice and tips to make the day go smoothly. He takes his time in getting to know the couple and is very hands-on in curating a ceremony that is personalized to the pair. In the end his delivery was PERFECTION!!! He made our ceremony so very special and unique as well as keeping our guests fully-engaged. Our wedding was last weekend and our guests are still talking about Rev Dave and how great he was. I highly-recommend choosing Rev Dave (the Wedding Rev) on your wedding day - you will be so glad you did!!!
